Ashley Martson has reportedly filed for divorce from husband Jay Smith for the second time.

The 90 Day Fiancé star filed the divorce papers in a Pennsylvania court earlier this week, according to E! News. She later seemingly confirmed the split news by posting a headline about the divorce on her Instagram Story, the outlet reports.

She also shared a photo of herself to Instagram on Tuesday with the caption, “Behind every Strong woman lies a broken little girl who had to learn to get back up, fix the the broken pieces, and never depend on anyone #bossbabe #fixyourcrownqueen #womansupportingwomen.”

TLC had no comment.

In January, the realty TV star reportedly first filed for divorce from Smith after eight months of marriage. However, less than two weeks after filing, Martson withdrew the paperwork, E! News reported.

Martson and Smith did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment at the time.

Martson and Smith starred in season 6 of the TLC show. While in Jamaica for a wedding, Martson met Smith at a club with a few of her girlfriends.

Though she didn’t expect to hear from him again, he tracked her down via social media and he proposed six months later when she returned to visit him.

During a fan Q&A on her Instagram Story in January, Martson refused to confirm or deny their breakup or the divorce filing.

When someone asked whether they were still together, she pasted a GIF that read: “idk man let’s eat pizza.

When another fan asked why she wouldn’t confirm the split, Martson wrote: “Nothing in this world that I like more than … [money],” pasting a GIF of a check.

While the couple didn’t address their marital status, Martson did write in a since-deleted Instagram post alongside a photo of the pair together, “Who the f— is leaking all this s—? #NotCool 💔.”

At the time, Smith also shared a sweet image of his own to Instagram, which has also been deleted, holding Martson — who has been battling ongoing health struggles — in his arms, and captioned it with a broken heart emoji.

On Jan. 13, the mother of two was rushed to the hospital after being found unresponsive in her home. It was determined that she was in kidney failure due to complications from lupus. Days later, she underwent surgery.
